EP 44 The Direction of FEMA with Brock Long

By EM Weekly | January 18, 2018

obviously, with IPAWS, that is definitely on the radar screen of those inside FEMA that are administrating the IPAWS program.

EP 43 Veterans Issues and Resources

By EM Weekly | January 11, 2018

This week is a unique episode, we’re actually doing three separate interviews, and it’s around the theme of veteran services. And why is that an emergency management issue? It’s debatable, right? So, you have the increase in homeless veteran population around the country, you have the 22 every day, where veterans are killing themselves.

EP 42 Thinking, Acting, Communicating Starting with Why

By EM Weekly | January 4, 2018

Leadership is about creating that context, and context is about creating simplicity. And simplicity starts with Why. What’s our higher purpose? How does what we’re doing fit in to delivering on that higher purpose? And that’s when you can unlock potential, when you can unlock huge energy within your team, even in very, very desperate, demanding times.

EP 41 Communicating to the Masses Lessons From a Spy

By EM Weekly | December 28, 2017

I one time flew a C-5 out of Travis’ Airforce Base. You know, I got long hair, you know, good shape, running around. They’re like: are you with this cargo? And they point, and it’s a bunch of zodiacs, like six of them. And I look, and I go: no. No one believes me, you know?

By EM Weekly | December 21, 2017

Those of us that are emergency managers, during the fires that are happening, specifically in Southern California, Ventura County, those that happened in Los Angeles County as well, those that are still going on in Santa Barbara and that area, I’m understanding what the loss is right now during this holiday season.

EP 39 Disaster Preparedness for Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations

So, if they don’t do that, then they can lose the ability to accept Medicare or Medicaid. So, there’s no joke here, it’s serious.

EP 38 Radio Interoperability Solutions Made Easy

By EM Weekly | December 7, 2017

Base Camp is kind of a magic box, in the sense that it’s a roller case that we deploy, basically, anywhere. And that rapid deploy kit interconnects agencies together using their own radios, and also, it provides telephone and internet service in five-minute flights, without any training

EP 37 Transforming Leadership with L. David Marquet

By EM Weekly | November 30, 2017

But if you want to build a high-performing team, this is where I would, like… a lot of people I see, we have an inordinate amount of energy and time and money spent on recruiting, and then we neglect how people talk to each other. It doesn’t make any sense.

EP 36 IAEM 2017 Conference and Emex with Ellis Stanley

By EM Weekly | November 23, 2017

I’m a chair at the global board. And what we’re doing from a global perspective is reaching out across the globe, building connections, building relationships, creating training opportunities, so that we can help other countries develop substantive emergency management programs.

EP 35 The Paradigm Shift of Active Shooter Response

By EM Weekly | November 16, 2017

But 28 people died, and could we have saved their lives? And the resounding answer is yes. We could have saved their lives, which is not a problem at all. If we had a tourniquet, chest seal, and trauma dressing as our option to go ahead and help save their lives.
